Whole 30 Wrap Up: Week 4

2016/10/30 by nikkiledford

My Whole 30 is complete! Here’s a rundown of how the final week went.

I mentioned in the Week 3 post that preparation is über important. Here are some of my favorite things to prepare to make sure I have everything I need for a week of Whole30-ing.

Almond Milk

Homemade Coffee Creamer. For those who are struggling with letting go of dairy or anyone who loves adding something sweet to their favorite morning beverage, this coffee creamer is creamy and has a hint of sweetness from the coconut milk.

Matcha Smoothie

Smoothies. Keeping the sugar content low is often as simple as adding some fun superfoods to diversify the flavor instead of a blender full of fruit. This green smoothie had some baby kale, a frozen banana, homemade almond milk, matcha powder, hemp seed protein powder, collagen peptides, and ice. Check here for more smoothie ideas!

Apple Tuna

Tuna, Egg, or Chicken Salad. Simplify lunches by preparing a batch ahead of time and scoop a serving into a bowl of greens or pre-roasted vegetables. Make sure to use clean ingredients like olive oil or homemade mayonnaise.

 

Veggie Chicken Bowl

Crockpot Meat. Fire up the ol’ slow cooker with a few lbs. of some chicken or beef and seasonings and you’ll have a grip of tasty protein to add to salads or vegetable bowls. This Ranch Chicken would work great! .

INGREDIENTS // one of my favorite activities is going out for coffee. For me, the sights, sounds, and smells of a coffee shop signal rest and I enter into a state of slowing down, more observing and less doing. Lately, I haven't been out to coffee too often because 1. It's expensive and 2. I don't tolerate dairy and I'm not much of a black coffee drinker so at most shops I'm limited to their dairy-free options. While it's nice to have nut milks available, I have discovered that all the other ingredients in these alternative drinks do NOT do my body any good. 
A solution to would be to bring my own homemade milk, but I don't always have some ready or I forget to put a bit in a small container (which then gives me the fun task of toting around a dirty jar in my car all day). These smaller bottles of almond milk are perfect for adding to my coffee when I'm out as most dairy-free milks come in huge cartons and are inconvenient for a coffee outing.  @popandbottle only uses basic, real food ingredients for their almond milk. They even sweeten it with a bit of date! 
I like to think that I always have a choice about what I put in my body. Sometimes I'll have to settle for black coffee, but if I plan a bit, I can still enjoy my coffee outings without ultimately compromising on what is best for me in the long run. SNACKS // kept it really simple today during meal prep. This is a tasty bowl of yams, banana, almond butter, and coconut flakes. FAST FOOD// Roasted all these veggies last night for a tasty quick lunch. Added a new find from Whole Foods. @goodlovinfoods lemon garlic dip. If you like bitchen sauce, you'll like this (!! bonus, they don't use any soy ingredients either !!) ROUTINE// Who else is meal prepping today? It's a small step that has big impact on your health... body and mind. One less stress to consider in a week full of choices and obstacles. #paleomealprep #sandiegoprivatechef #sandiegopaleo
